~BLUE MONDAY~

Well Ladies!! here we are at the first BLUE Monday of 2009 and I would like to thank our hostess Sally for putting this all together...please check her out to see all the great BLUE Stuff for the day...http://smilingsally.blogspot.com/

Now this is just the most cutest thing I have in my BLUE Kitchen...its a Sunshine Biscuits boy form ca. 1930 and look at his pretty BLUE eyes...this is from a General store display and he would of held sample crackers...but I love my little bread turtle my grandson Josh had made for me when he went to Fisherman's Wharf...its very heavy but I still have earthquake paste holding it down..yes we do that in Calif...My Len got this for me Christmas 07...and it was one of the first things I posted on RMS...



How about a BLUE Willow tea pot....just to love the BLUE bird on the top...





A fake BLUE Berry pie....Len got me this when we were just Dating...knew I loved my BLUE Kitchen...or he was hinting I should make him a pie....




More BLUE Willow plates with a BLUE and white wall pocket...don't you love these things..I have a few of them and think they are great !!! well that all I have to show for this BLUE Monday but next Monday will be here soon... Please do your self a favor and visit all the BLUE gals today...


May you all have a safe and blessed day...


Hugs and Smiles Gloria

Everything is beautiful. I collect Blue Willow and have never seen a Blue Willow teapot like yours. That is my favorite.

Gloria,
what wonderful blues you are sharing today! I love the fact you also use earthquake "goo", that's what I call it and unfortunately we had to learn the hard way before we invested in some (boo hoo).
Love, love, love the blue willow plates, especially the one in the center and the biscuit boy is just to cute, but mr turtle is cuter! lol!
Enjoy your day!

Glenda said...

"Old blue eyes" is really cute, but being a tea drinker, my favorite today would have to be the gorgeous teapot with the "Bluebird of Happiness" setting on the lid to use to lift the pot cover.

Kim said...

All your blue is beautiful, but like some of the other commenters, I have my eye on the pretty little teapot!
*smiles*

What a cute post, love your little baker boy. I've never heard of earthquake glue! Around here I guess we need tornado glue, do they make such a thing? Hugs, Kathy

Hi Gloria, your blue kitchen is beautiful. I love the blue willow and the blue eyes and the turtle bread. It's all good. I never thought of fastening anything down in case of an earthquake. It sure does make sense.

You know I collect teapots, right Gloria? If that little blue one comes up missing, well. . .
I just got my mom's blue and white dishes back from my sister - she had them boxed up in her attic - I'm trying to find a spot to put them!!

Happy New Year, Gloria ... the biscuits boy is adorable! Here's to a great 2009!

Fieldstone said...

Hi Gloria, I'm a day late for "Blue Monday," but here visiting you with my Tuesday morning coffee. I'm "blue" about my front yard. After 3 weeks of snow and ice, the cable guys trampled through the plants and grass to upgrade for TV and Internet. But your biscuit boy reminds me of happy days from RMS. Oh, and that amazing blue sink! Your blue-and-white teapot and plates on the blue wall make me believe there are BLUE SKIES ahead! Blessings, Pam

Lady Katherine said...

I love your tea kettle, oh the bird is too cute on it. I love the Platters too! I think I have only round platters. I just love blue! My kitchen will always be Happy to be BLUE. lol
